These stunningly realistic wooden figures by Bruno Walpoth represent human beings in their rawest form, soft skin carved out of hard wood, every wrinkle and detail carved in while evidence of tool work remains when they're inspected up close.
If I came across one of these figures standing alone in a dark room I would probably jump right out of my skin, because they look like they might come to life at any moment, and not in a cute Pinocchio kind of way.
And what's more terrifying than a skinny, pasty skinned guy standing around in a dark room without a shirt or shoes on? NOTHING.
